Snowfall

Post  johnp on 4/17/2016, 9:38 am

Big day for snow yesterday. Started as light rain Friday night at about 10:30 and was starting to turn to snow
Saturday at about 6AM. That is when I removed the top of our rain gauge to allow for snow. It is probably not the most accurate but all I have. At that time there was 0.30 inches in the gauge. I brought the whole thing in this morning and thawed it out. Total including two dead ladybugs and one spider was 1.75 inches. cheers They had more to the north but for us this is a big deal waterwise. We did not get the strong winds so the snow is pretty even everywhere so the melting will put it in the soil which really needs it. Maybe some wild flowers later. The snow is completely covering my onion sets but I can still see some of the garlic stems.  Very Happy Very Happy The only downfall is the 28 degrees temp. this morning and maybe the same tonight. All the apples trees are in bloom. I have two trees and I live less than a half a mile from three commercial orchards. I have to talk with the owners of one because I believe he has said in the past that if the blossom is covered with ice (as mine are) they can survive.

Yes it is spectacular. Along with the snow last night we had 3/4 of an inch last Monday night so 2.5 inches in less than a week. That is almost like living in the middle of the US. As a side note since I can't lift over 10 pounds for the next 5 weeks guess who had to shovel the walkway bounce
